Tel Aviv, Israel, 17 November 2010 - Incapsula today announced the debut of its cloud-based Web Application Firewall (WAF) service. Incapsula was founded by Gur Shatz, Incapsula’s CEO and former VP of products at Imperva, and Marc Gaffan, Incapsula’s VP of Marketing and Business development, who was formerly the Director of Product Marketing at RSA. Incapsula was spun out of Imperva to leverage Imperva’s award-winning WAF technology to meet the needs of small businesses worldwide.

Incapsula offers businesses an easy and affordable way to manage website security and performance in-house. For hosting and other service providers, Incapsula enables website security to be extended to an entire customer base and can serve as a platform to offer additional IT services.

“Adding a website to Incapsula is a simple five-minute process that does not require installation of hardware or software, just a simple DNS change,” explained Shatz. “Incapsula inspects all incoming traffic to any subscriber’s website, keeping hackers out while accelerating outgoing traffic. The Incapsula service is suitable for the SMB and cloud market, requiring minimal setup with monthly subscriptions starting at only $50 a month.”

“Incapsula is also designed to enable hosting companies, MSSPs and other service providers an effective platform for managing the security and performance of their customers’ websites,” explained Shatz.

Incapsula is currently in Beta and already protecting dozens of websites that are using the service. Anyone can apply for the Beta at www.incapsula.com. The Incapsula service is expected to be commercially available at the beginning of 2011.
